What we know

Gerard Butler stars as a space scientist who has to save the world from a series of natural disasters by Jim Sturgess to kidnap the US President. Yep.

What the critics say

  • “Don’t expect to read raving reviews. But be prepared to be satisfied. Given Butler’s arrogant and pompous but rather charming demeanor, this film can be easily called Earth Has Fallen.” – GeekCulture
  • “Geostorm has the potential to become an important cautionary tale. Instead, the movie falls far short of those expectations.” – SCMP

What we know

A star-studded ensemble star in Armando Ianucci’s farce about, surprisingly enough, the death of Stalin.

What the critics say

  • “Iannucci’s brand of political satire is applied to one of the darkest chapters in modern history, with sensational results.” – Empire
  • “Iannucci’s version of events may be well researched but it still gives us a very British, very witty but facetious version of a dark story which might have been better told by an insider..” – The Independent

Marshall

What we know

Thurgood Marshall was the first black Supreme Court Justice, he was a lawyer on a mission. This Is Us star Sterling K Brown stars as a man in need of a legal miracle in 1940s Connecticut.

What the critics say

  • “This is Boseman’s film. A natural star, he’s already played two towering real-life figures – James Brown (Get On Up) and Jackie Robinson (42). He makes it a hat-trick here, totally convincing as an energetic young man, blessed with fierce idealism and swaggering charisma.” – The Guardian
  • “By approaching Marshall as an idealistic young trial lawyer, the film stands on its own as a compelling courtroom drama, complete with surprising revelations.” – Variety
